In 2009 KWS Motorsports fielded the Aprilia Factory effort in the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike class with riders Chaz Davies, Ben Thompson and then Aaron Gobert. The team took the Aprilia RSV1000R to the competition in the class with impressive results for an largely undeveloped bike with 10 year old technology. KWS Technician Michael Godin drops some knowledge on us form his experience in working with the bike.
KWS '09 AMA Superbike Series Season Review
In 2009 we had the good fortune to work with the guys at Factory Aprilia
Millennium Technologies KWS for the entire season. We documented their race
efforts as riders Chaz Davies and Ben Thompson (later replaced by Aaron
Gobert) navigated a new rules package on a bike that nobody had ever raced
at a professional level. The following is the entire season with the
exception of the Laguna Seca round. The segments had been missing from this
iteration of OnTheThrottle.TV previous to this re-edit. Enjoy...

Dane Westby's First Daytona Sportbike Win
Dane Westby and crew chief Chuck Giacchetto were itching to work with each
other since 2008 when Dane showed promise on a clapped out race bike he
borrowed. The two hooked up full time in 2009 and have been together ever
since. Dane took a second place in the Daytona 200 in 2010 with Project 1
Atlanta, but a win in the ultra competitive class has eluded he and his
team until the Mid-Ohio round this year when he won with his M4 Suzuki
squad. The win was a huge Boost for
Dane who says he has felt like somewhat of a second tier rider in a class
that often sees first place battles running 8-10 riders deep.
